How to Choose Your Bridesmaids

Tips for Choosing Your Bridesmaids

Tips for Choosing Your Bridal Party

Since I’m not originally from Cincinnati and my home is in Washington I knew that not many of my friends and family would want to make the trek out to Ohio for my wedding. Choosing my bridesmaids was easy for me. They were both my best friends in college. My fiancé always thought that the number of bridesmaids and groomsman had to match but I’m not too worried about following tradition. Although he will have more people in his party than I will, I don’t think it will be or look strange at all. I mean who doesn’t love an unconventional wedding?

If you’re stuck on how to choose your bridal party, here’s my advice: think about what purpose the bridal party will serve in your wedding. Once you figure that out, it will become much easier to decide whom to ask. But wait, there’s more!

Bachelorette Party Idea: Glamping

Bachelorette Glamping

Camping Bachelorette Party Ideas

You might be thinking, camping?! For my bachelorette party?! I know, I know, not all girls are into camping, but glamping, short for “glamorous camping” is really another story. This does not have to be roughing it in the woods with one roll of toilet paper (unless that’s your kind of thing). Glamping is much more, well, glamorous. We’re talking luxury in the great outdoors with tipis, high-end tents, beds, and often modern amenities such as A/C and running water. Getting back to nature with your girlfriends is a relaxing escape from wedding planning and a wonderful time to recharge and reconnect. But wait, there’s more!

Gifts for your Bridesmaids

When gifting Wedding Bags totes to their bridesmaids or bachelorette party attendees, brides rarely give just the bag alone. I get asked quite often for suggestions of what other gifts to fill the personalized totes with. Putting together the gift bags can be such a fun process, as you can make the bags completely tailored to your personal style or the personalities of your girls. Classy, well-made (and affordable) bridesmaid and bachelorette gifts or favors can be pretty hard to find.

I plan to offer a carefully curated collection of classy bridesmaid and bachelorette gifts on the Wedding Bags website this upcoming Spring. You’ll be able to first choose your bag design and then choose the goodies to go inside (how easy is that?!). But wait, there’s more!

This past summer, my little sister got married. We’re only a year and half apart in age, so growing up we were really close in age. Sometimes that meant not liking each other a whole lot though. However, we grew a lot closer when we ended up at the same college.

My First Wedding Bags Order

Calligraphy tote bags from my first bridal party collection.

My first order for bridesmaid gifts was quite frankly an accident. I had been selling journals and art prints for a while when I decided to try my hand at screen printing. I was fascinated by the entire process of screen printing – creating the design, burning it to a screen, layering the different colors, and the unique creations that could come from it. After a lot of trial and error (read: A LOT), I finally had some tote bags that I felt I could be proud of and might actually sell. I posted it in my online shop, hoping a few people would just look at it. To my shock, I sold two bags in the first 24 hours of the totes being posted. Suddenly I was getting custom requests for all kinds of tote bags. There was one request, though, that really caught my attention. I was asked to create bags for a girl’s bridesmaids for her upcoming wedding. She wanted something that was not only functional, but pretty and fun. But wait, there’s more!

My Passion

facebook customer review 1aFor as long as I can remember, all of my life, I have been making and creating. As a child, I was always working on some art project, and then turning around and trying to sell it or turn it into a business. So I guess it’s no surprise that I ended up in a creative field, even after years spent in the corporate world. Although I enjoyed my career in analytics, I would constantly find myself counting down the time until I could get home and I could spend my nights painting, designing, printing – just creating in general!
